Re: “Monkton Woman Arrested at Vermont Gas 'Knit-In' Protest

It's true, Murray pushed Katie on her upper arm; I happened to be looking right at them when he did it. I was astounded. Two important points. 1) Katie is *tiny* -- short and slight. 2) The push was a physical manifestation of Murray's vocal insistence that the journalists leave the premises, which he chose to direct toward Katie, the smallest and only female reporter, rather than the larger men with video cameras and other apparatus. Katie was apologizing to him for staying, but explaining that it was her job to stay and follow the story and see what would happen to the knitters; she also said she wanted to call her editor. After the shove, however, she stepped outside the first glass door, and we could see her on the phone (presumably with her editor), shaking and crying. She's a hero for having had to endure Murray's dishonorable, cowardly, and sexist focus on her. She's also a hero for turning out the most substantive of the reports on the knit-in yet.
